Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Oliver Drage, 19, of Liverpool has been convicted of "failing to disclose an encryption key" which is an offense under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 and as a result has been jailed for 16 weeks. Police seized his computer but could not get past the 50-character encrypted password that he refused to give up. And just to get it out of the way, obligatory XKCD."
